Getty, the official photo agency for the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games, has announced that it plans to make use of some non-traditional methods when it shoots the athletic goings-ons this summer. The photographers covering the events will be shot in 3D, and some of them will be shot in a 360 degree format. Some of the events, Getty has said, will be shot entirely using robotic cameras. Getty has previously used its new 360 degree photography format last year at the wedding of royals Prince William and Kate Middleton.
